The mission of Adelante Latina! is to help 10th-12th grade Latinas in Baltimore City public high schools overcome the socio-cultural, economic and academic barriers they face in pursuing their dream of attending college.
¡Adelante Latina! is a free, three-year after-school college preparatory program for underprivileged Latinas attending Baltimore City public high schools. The goal of the program is for all its participants to be accepted to either a 2-year community college or a 4-year college or university with adequate financial support. It provides classroom instruction and one-on-one tutoring two days a week for two hours afterschool, in addition to providing experiential learning through cultural opportunities, a week-long college prep "camp," mentoring and summer internship placement.
